nah, I don't want cameras INSIDE my home. I want complete privacy ... I wouldn't risk the chance of anyone ever getting their hands on videotape of me and my family. Plus, how creepy is that for guests of mine?
I want the cameras outside so I can see who got in and who's snooping around outside
for inside, I'll have the motion detectors to sound an alarm and alert a monitoring company

One thing I did do when we bought our house is had my electrician buddy wire all the flood lights in the backyard to one switch in the bedroom. Before I open the bedroom door the whole back yard is lit up.

Chances of catching the thieves even with video isn't that great. Make the cameras very visible and put motion sensors on flood lights. Do whatever you can to make your home seem less desirable than your neighbors. Also put a camera facing the street. Robbers often scope homes by driving by slowly.
